I've got a few minor tendencies. Left sock and shoe on before my right. Keys always in left pocket, wallet and phone in right pocket. After my shower, it's q-tip to ears, comb hair, deodorant in that order. The cash in my wallet always has to be facing the same way, smallest bill on outside to largest bill in the middle.
nice, I'll have to pick one of those up. The swiffers kinda suck after using them a few times.

Re: what are your ocd tendencies?

All of the above.

I cannot relax unless my entire domicile is perfect. My kids have a toy room in the basement and it has to be spotless all of the time. Needless to say it sucks to be one of my children and want to play with your toys. Their window of opportunity is small.

Re: what are your ocd tendencies?

Milk is mine. It has to be the last thing I pick out from the grocery store then I go straight to check out (seperate bag of course). Then its the first thing that gets put in the fridge. Now if someone leaves the milk out of the fridge longer than 2 minutes and it gets a little warm I will mark it with a pen and wont drink out of it or I will pour down the drain.

Drives my wife insane. Me? I chose to live stress free.
This is me, with one exception: spoons in the dishwasher must be oriented in a position so that they do not stack against each other, otherwise they will not get clean. I guess some people would call that OCD, but I just call it Logic.

Re: what are your ocd tendencies?

WTF?

Is this what y'all are talking about?

compulsive personality disorder - Bing Health

Is everyone crazy these days or is it just me?

Re: what are your ocd tendencies?

We're not talking about full blown OCD here, more like the little annoying, anal retentive habits/routines we all have.

No, it's just you. You are the only crazy one.

Yes this is what we are talking about however, it is not fair to categorize our tendencies as OCD. I believe that it is a bit of an exaggeration. Fear and anxiety drive OCD. What we have are pet peeves. While I do feel a little anxiety and am unable to relax if things are out of place, I can let it slide given certain situations sometimes. A person with OCD can never let it slide for fear of something or some consequence whether it be real or imaginary.

I never lay out my clothes even when I know what exactly I'm going to wear.. with my organization I know where it is and don't want to lay it out anywhere

the obvious exception being if it's dress clothing in which I obviously leave out or treat beforehand

the written planner is something that I don't let go of either.. it may not be done meticulously or even on time but I make it accessible and my employees are accountable for what's in it

as far as a personal planner, don't have one
Haha. Well, I'm not as bad as it seems. Really it comes down to two questions for me before I go to sleep: Is my home clean, and am I prepared for tomorrow?

If the answer to both isn't yes, I do stuff before I go to bed.

I can't let my airplane tray and dresser drawers tendencies slide really. It's a real struggle for me. And when I'm listening to the radio in the car, I need the volume to be set at an even number. If my wife is adjusting the volume I'll either then adjust it to an even number or look away so I don't know if she set it to an odd number.

For the most part there are only 2 things that will convince me to let things slide.
1. If my wife says "just go in the other room and it will get taken care of". I do have to check it latter to make sure that it was done right.

2. If my wife wants me to come upstairs and take care of her.

When the latter occurs I end up comming back downstairs to finish the job. Hey, I know how to prioritize.

- My finances. I track and categorize my spending and reconcile any unclassified amounts on a monthly basis.
That's funny, when this thread popped up last night, I would have thought you would be one of most OCD people on here.

A buddy of mine with kids told me that my cleanliness issues will die really fast once my wife and I have some little ones.

Oh yeah, I forgot the bed. First thing I do when I get up is make the bed. An unmade bed can make an otherwise clean bedroom look a total mess.

Re: what are your ocd tendencies?

I can't stand filth, especially a refrigerator with old food in it. I don't clean everyday but I do have a field day every week, or every other week if I'm feeling lazy. Everything has a specific place where it belongs, from my amps to my books. My life and surroundings are pretty orderly.
